Hotel of the week
New York City
“Trendy and near the airport are no longer mutually exclusive,” said Lilit Marcus in CNN.com. The first hotel at New York’s JFK airport arrived last week when TWA unveiled the 512-room retro-chic resting place it has created by converting Eero Saarinen’s landmark 1962 terminal. Though there were first-day glitches—including no access to the rooftop pool—the glass-walled guest rooms proved miraculously quiet, said Bloomberg.com. Expect not luxury, though, but “an homage to a past era of aviation”—including a bar inside a vintage plane and countless other Instagram opportunities.
